Fuyu Persimmon Smoothie

Persimmon Smoothie Made Simple and Delicious with just 5 Ingredients

Persimmon Smoothie | figsandfeta.com

According to Wikipedia, the generic name for the Fuyu persimmon tree is Diospyros, which comes from the ancient Greek words dios (διός) and pyros (πυρος). The translation from Greek to English means more or less “divine fruit” or “divine food.” Being a lover of the Fuyu Persimmon, this translation is pretty spot on.

Spicy Hummus Spread

Hummus-2Some years ago I went through a hummus phase. I was constantly craving hummus and with every batch prepared the outcome became more lemony or more garlicky. I not only enjoyed eating said hummus and impressing my family and friends with this homemade goodness, but I also enjoyed the fact that it was so easy to prepare. There is a certain satisfaction to preparing something delicious so quickly and with very little clean up.
